Lindell AMPX power amplifier Review System

Sidebar 2: Review System

I put the AMPX into the system I wrote about in my August 2013 columnParasound Halo CD 1 CD player, Bricasti M1 DAC, Opera Callas speakers—checked all the connections, turned down the volume on the Bricasti, and pressed the AMPX's power switch. Nothing blew up, which is always a relief.—John Marks

I have been told that Lindell credit Audreal for the design and manufacturing of the AMPX and I was wondering how the Audreal PA-20 differs from the AMPX.  Does the Lindell have that claimed A/B headroom that the PA-20 claims to have? Are they essentially sonically the same?

I am sorry, this is absolutely the first I have heard of that!

I can't look into this for perhaps a month, but, you could always ask Lindell or their US importer.

I of course was unaware of the other amp until JA forwarded your post to me.

Will do, Thanks John!

Lindell-Audreal- Xindak pa-m are the same amplifiers apart from the Xindak has XLR and RCA inputs as well.
Being very fussy I would say that this amplifier lacks details and dynamics at the low end and pushes mids forward a bit.
(Compared it to my Krell s300i and Bryston 4bsst2)
Otherwise it has an easy-going, fluid presentation and generally a pleasure to listen to.

Any comments on the Lindell AMPX with KEF LS50's?
